Hair_Extension_Toolkit is an add-on that highly enhances the controllability of the hair in Blender. There are many practical functions, like merging and splitting particle systems, resetting the number, steps, and length of the guides, applying the effect of children to the guides, recording the hair selections (There is a PieMenu about hair selections), etc., thus greatly helping users improve the efficiency of the creation of the hair.
Note: This add-on is updated to support Blender 2.83. For the later Blender versions, we haven’t updated yet. Please check the versions before purchasing it to avoid the incompatibility due to the versions. Please feel free to tell us about the issue of incompatibility.
2.Hair splitting and merging:
5.Reset Hair Number:
In Object Mode or Particle Edit Mode, Hair_Extension_Toolkit can uniform the length of the hair; meanwhile, it also can keep the original shape and update the display of hair in real time.
7.Reset the settings of the particle system:
This function allows users to remodify the settings of the edited hair, reset all the parameters in the particle system but with the original guides, and apply the settings of a particle system to another particle system.
Hit Edit on the menu bar, then Preferences - Add-ons - Install, and select the zip file to install.
Do not slide Rekey, or Blender may crash easily.
Please toggle off the Mirror before using Subdivide in hair selection, otherwise Blender may crash easily or the selected hair may be not correct.
Reset Hair Number:
Please do not change the settings frequently of the edited particle systems. And you can change the settings of the hair to hair’s. Changing the settings of hair to the settings of emitter may cause the project’s damage.
When using the twist effect of the children, applying the effect of children may cause some issues of virtual parents.
Key number needs to be smaller than the key number of curves, which is to solve the issue that the curves have too many keys and reduce the key number of the hair. If needed, please add the key number of the guides by hand.
CheckToolBox highlights the information of models (poles, triangles, N-gons, etc.) in real time through shading colors of models in Edit Modes. With only one-click, the project overview is displayed, for instance object count, double count, isolated element count, etc.
Particle_Pie_Menu is a handy add-on for hair editing. With all options in the pie menus, you can easily edit the particle systems in any mode, greatly improving your productivity. In Object Mode, you can change the hair display color, modify the order of the particle systems and the settings, etc.
